Unless you’re a brand new business that just created a Facebook Page, I’m assuming you’re not starting from zero likes. One of the first things you should do is leverage the people who already like your page.

Once your content is shared, those posts will be seen by the friends of those who shared them.
But now there is an increased likelihood that more people will like your page, allowing them to see this type of content on a regular basis.
